Office of Financial Planning

Elon University is committed to providing an exceptional education at a reasonable cost. Elon's cost of tuition, room and board remains below the national average for private four-year colleges and universities.

2014-2015 Elon University

Tuition and Fees $31,247
Room and Board $10,667
Total* $41,914

Note: Beginning Jan. 26, the Office of Financial Planning will be located in the Inman Admissions Welcome Center, located next to the Moseley Center in the heart of Elon's campus.

We believe our policy of keeping costs low is appreciated by our parents and students. In a recent survey, current parents rated their level of satisfaction with Elon 4.5 on a 5.0 scale, and 75 percent cited Elon as a "good educational value."

You may receive larger scholarships and need based awards from other schools. We simply ask that you compare the bottom line and the quality of education that you will be receiving. If you enroll, our commitment is that you will receive the best possible education for the most reasonable possible cost.

For federal financial aid purposes, indirect costs including books, transportation, and miscellaneous expenses (set at $3,500) are added to tuition, fees, room, and board to determine Elon University’s official total cost of attendance, which is $45,414 for 2014-2015.

Room and Board figures are based on a standard double room and the All Access Basic meal plan. Total actual costs per student may vary depending upon room and board selections, but aggregate financial aid may not exceed the stated cost of attendance of $45,414.
